Breakfast was a let down as my omelette wasn't flavorful however it was served promptly and plated beautifully. The staff are attentive and its an incredibly peaceful little hotel.

Business trip which felt like a holiday at The View. Beautiful hotel, the view is simply amazing, the rooms are stunning, slept like a king, ate like a king at Giorgios. Breakfast is awesome.The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Little difficult to find at first, but will most certainly be coming back.

Beautiful rooms with exquisite views of the ocean. Very friendly and professional staff. The restaurant staff went out of their way to cater for my food allergies. One of the best hotels in South Africa.
